After collecting the bagagge we walked to the exit of the airport in search of a smoking area. (I'm terrible, I know). In fact we wanted to search the public bus leaving to Ban Phe, but a taxi driver offered us to take us there. The sight of an aircon taxi was too attempting for us so we bargained quickly with the man.
I forgot to make pictures of the trip to Ban Phe. I only remember thinking "it's not like Indonesia" and I saw a lot of blue roofs on houses (it made me wonder why and I still don't know).
After arriving in Ban Phe, the taxi driver brought us to one of the many pier's. The ticket sellers were happy to sell us anything.
Oh well, these people in Ban Phe had to earn their money too, and we're talking about a few euro's. But we allways want to pay a right price, don't like the feeling to be ripped off for a few euro's. It makes me feel like a walking wallet (not nice!).
This was my first time ever in a speed boat. It really rocked me upside down!! WOW! What a strength and power! Every wave smacked us back from high to down, water was splashing in our faces. We had a fun drive to the island! The jetlag even seemed to dissapear. :)
In the distance Koh Samed was waiting for us.
